NEW BARGE -- The new barge G. W. WESLEY, which was driven ashore near the mouth of the Saginaw River, during the recent storm, arrived here this morning with a cargo of 100,000 feet of lumber consigened to Sage, McGraw & Co. The WESLEY is a very strong, well built craft, or she would not have survived her experience during the late gale.
